Renowned Zoologist Dr. Abby Hafer to speak On “Unintelligent Design”
Renowned Zoologist Dr. Abby Hafer to speak On “Unintelligent Design” at Humanist & Freethinker of Cape Fear Darwin Day Event in Wilmington, North Carolina
Zoologist Dr. Hafer is a well known speaker, humorist and writer. She challenges science deniers with an engaging presentation that bounces from Intelligent Design and Creationism to the political pressures that challenge evolution. Dr. Hafer focuses on bullet-proof science that takes on the Intelligent Design community with short, easy-to-understand and witty arguments.
“Who does God like better, us – or squid?” and “Why do men’s testicles have such a bad location?” are among the attention-getting and thought-provoking questions Dr. Hafer proposes to her audiences.
Hafer, the author of soon-to-be published book “The Not-So-Intelligent Designer – Why Evolution Explains the Human Body and Intelligent Design Does Not,” holds a doctorate in zoology from Oxford University and currently teaches physiology and human anatomy at Curry College. She is a frequent radio guest, including National Public Radio/Public Radio International, and has spoken to numerous groups, including the American Humanist Association and at the American Atheists 50th anniversary conference in 2013.
